TOLEDO, Ohio - The Toledo-Lucas County Health Department says they will be ending several programs at the department's downtown office.

In a letter sent to affected patients last month, the Health Department announced they would no longer be offering primary care clinics after June 30, 2018. That includes family practice, pediatric services, prenatal care, women's health, adult medicine and dental programs. 

Some of those services may soon be available again in east Toledo. The Department is awaiting government site approval for a site at 2020 Starr Ave. When the new location is approved, some of those services will be available again at the new site. 

The Sexually Transmitted Disease Clinic, Tuberculosis Testing, Adult and Travel Immunizations, PrEP Program, Mobile Vision and Vision Clinic, and the Shots 4 Tots 'n Teens Program will continue to operate at the Health Department's downtown location. 

The letter also contained details about other possible locations for patients to receive care. You can see the full list here
